Living up to his quality of being the most versatile actor, the two times national awardwinner Manoj Bajpayee is now going to be seen in the most unconventional role of a constable in the short film ‘Taandav’.

Directed by Mr. Devashish Makhija and Produced by online portal Muvizz.com, the film portrays the life of a head constable who is torn between following the righteous trail and being seduced by the dark path of dishonesty.

Tandav is described as a vigorous dance by lord Shiva that is the source of the cycle of creation, preservation and dissolution. The Taandav dance in itself depicts angry dance movements, and immersing oneself in that dance to overcome the feeling of frustration.
